There has been a commercial running for the past several weeks claiming one lobbyist was responsible for the continued rise in Kentucky's tax on gasoline. My question is how did one person pass this tax? I thought that the state Senators and State Representative that make up the legislature were responsible for passing laws. I also was under the impression that the political position that the two candidates are running for was for the United States senate. Commercials such as these are an insult to the intelligence of the people of Kentucky. I am only interested in a candidate that is willing to tell me what his ideas are to improve the dire situation that we are in at this time. Politicians need to stop the mud slinging mentality and quit insulting us. It is time that we take back the responsibility as voters and take a real interest in who we elect to represent us.
